Winter Beauty Edit: The ultimate products for seasonal skincare

By  |  0 Comments

It’s not just your mood that the chilly winter days can affect, as ensuring your skin gets through the cold snap unscathed can also be tricky.
Whether it’s a ruddy complexion, chapped lips or dry and flaky skin you’re dealing with, luckily there’s an abundance of beauty products out there to keep you looking glowing as ever.
Here’s our must have products to incorporate into your skincare regime and get you through the winter months.



Harborist Balm Gel Cleanser, £27




Creating an effective day to night skincare regime is key to keeping your complexion fresh and hydrated during winter.
First up, address your skin barrier, starting with the first step in your regime – your cleanser.
Harborist Founder Kate Porter said: “Keeping happy hydrated skin is all about keeping your barrier healthy. Swapping to a non-irritating cleanser is often where you’ll see the most dramatic results, because the wrong cleanser can quite quickly disrupt your barrier without you realising.”
While we might think of rich balms and oils in cold weather, the right humectants are important too. Glycerine is the mainstay of pharmacy products for good reason. This cleanser is gentle but effective at removing all traces of makeup and grime without stripping moisture from the skin.

Developed to brighten and revitalise dull skin types, these luxurious daily radiance pads are great for gentle exfoliating, eradicating dead skin cells, and tackling flaky skin or blocked pores.
